Intel Omni-Path Architecture: The Real Numbers

In this slidecast, Joe Yaworski from Intel describes the Intel Omni-Path architecture and how it scales performance for a wide range of HPC applications. He also shows why recently published benchmarks have not  reflected the real performance story.

Why Rescale is one of the Fastest Growing Enterprise Software Companies of 2017

Over at the Rescale Blog, Joris Poort writes that the company has been named one of the fastest growing enterprise software companies of 2017. “It’s been a busy year as we’ve landed over 100 new enterprise customers, fueling our rapid growth in multiple key industry verticals including aerospace, automotive, life sciences, universities and with broad geographic coverage throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.”

Pointwise Announces Geode Geometry Kernel

Today Pointwise announced Project Geode, the company’s response to the NASA CFD Vision 2030 Study’s identification of the lack of CFD software access to geometry. As part of the announcement, Pointwise has opened beta testing of a geometry modeling kernel for computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation software. “The kernel’s core geometry evaluation functions can provide all the functionality a CFD solver would need for tasks like mesh adaption and elevation of elements to higher-order. We are now seeking additional beta testers to validate this idea.”

Rescale Demonstrates Easy HPC Cloud Management at SC17

In this video from SC17, Peter Lyu from Rescale demonstrates how the company brings HPC Workloads to the Cloud. “Rescale helps customers shift from complex on-premise workflows to an easy-to-use web-based engineering SaaS workflow; Workflow variety: Rescale supports all types of workflows including multidisciplinary exploration, optimizations, design of experiments, and more.”

Fortune 500 Firms Join IBM Q Network for Quantum Computing Research

Today IBM announced the first clients to tap into its IBM Q early-access commercial quantum computing systems to explore practical applications important to business and science. In all, twelve initial organizations joined to foster a growing quantum computing ecosystem based on IBM’s open source quantum software and developer tools.

Intel SC17 Booth Tour: Driving Innovation in HPC

In this video, David Warberg gives us a quick tour of the Intel booth at SC17. “Intel unveiled new HPC advancements for optimized workloads, including the the addition of a new family of HPC solutions to the Intel Select Solutions program. Built on the latest Intel Xeon Scalable platforms, Intel Select Solutions are verified configurations designed to speed and simplify the evaluation and deployment of data center infrastructure while meeting a high performance threshold.”

Video: A Petascale HPC System at BASF

Dr. Stephan Schenk from BASF gave this talk at the DDN User Group at SC17. “With 1.75 petaflops, our supercomputer QURIOSITY offers around 10 times the computing power that BASF currently has dedicated to scientific computing. In the ranking of the 500 largest computing systems in the world, the BASF supercomputer is currently number 71.”

Quantum Drives High Performance Storage at SC17

In this video from SC17, Molly Presley from Quantum describes how the company’s high performance storage systems power HPC. “So why have an autonomous car at a Supercomputing show? The answer is Big Data. The Autonomous Stuff vehicle in this video is actually a rolling software development platform equipped with sensors that generate a whopping 30 Terabytes of data per day. Now just imagine if there were millions of vehicles on the road generating this kind of data. Only HPC could deal with that problem at scale. Companies like Quantum are stepping up to help solve this big data problem, both in the vehicle, on the edge, and in the datacenter.”
